The Milwaukee Bucks are back in action tonight and have a chance to clinch a playoff spot with a win versus the New York Knicks and a loss by the Pacers to the Pistons. The latter seems unlikely--the Pacers have won three straight and now have Paul George back in the rotation. But Milwaukee has already beaten the woeful Knicks three times this season, so one more certainly seems doable.

Bucks vs Knicks Fantasy Tip
The mini-controversy over Giannis Antetokounmpo's unexpected benching versus the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday has cast a bit of doubt on his availability for tonight's contest, but all expectations are that he'll be back on the court. Let's hope so, because Giannis has played quite well against the Knicks this season, averaging 15 points and almost 8 rebounds per game on 60% shooting. A slump-busting game for Giannis would be a welcome sight for the Bucks as they gear up for the playoffs. Limited in part by foul trouble, Giannis has averaged just 10 points and 4 rebounds per game over his last three. Tonight offers an excellent chance for him to get back on track.
